The Pure Plate Reverb plug-in was engineered by the modeling experts at Universal Audio to be a no-compromise emulation of this classic effect. By capturing all of the sonic and mechanical nuances of the steel plate, transducers, and dampers, the Pure Plate Reverb plug-in gives vocals, guitars, strings, and synths a lush, satisfying space that gently flatters any source.

Easy to Use

Whether you’re tracking in realtime using an Apollo interface, or mixing in your DAW, Pure Plate Reverb’s intuitive controls deliver musical results for beginners and pros alike. The ultra-effective Baxandall-type Bass and Treble controls sculpt the timbre of the reverb, while the Low Cut Hz input filters and Pre Delay further season the reverb’s character. Finally, the Balance control lets you place your “space” perfectly in the stereo spectrum. No matter the source, Pure Plate Reverb gives you the rich analog dimension and depth of an old-school plate reverb system.

      as a plate reverb junkie…

      this sounds shockingly great for being a more scaled down version. even if you have other things, get this one.

      The best soundcard I have ever had.

      I have bought the Universal Audio Volt 276 soundcard and holy moly... Am I so satisfied and happy about it. The functionality, quality of processing and all the benefits that come with it in the form of plugins, software and other stuff its mind-blowing. The only thing I am not used to though is the on / off switch. I have had a Focusrite 2i2 (3rd Gen) before and this soundcard automatically switched on & off with my computer. However, I have a much better and rich recording experience with the Volt 276. I am recording my guitar and I find the 76 compressor and Vintage mode an outstanding feature. All in all, I love it.

      Perfectly simple

      Easy and quick to dial in a desired preset. And more importantly, great sounding plate as well!

      Pure Plate Reverb, I wish I could

      Unfortunately I am unable to experience and write a review about the PPReverb because I purchased the Volt 4 and when I tried to download it, I could not . The Sweetwater site stated 10.14 was required but I have a Mac 10.14.6 and when I tried to download it , a message stated that 10.15 and later is required to download. Sorry, I wish I could experience it !

      I love this reverb!

      This plug in came bundled with my Apollo Twin X along with some other cool plug ins. I haven’t really had the chance to use all the plug ins yet to be able to write a fair review but I really think this reverb is awesome. It’s warm, it doesn’t get in the way and it just has a nice vibe to it. Of course it’s always different strokes for different folks but this will be my main go to for reverbs.

      simple and straight forward

      gives a nice metallic taste that many plate emulations lack. very simple controls with all you need to dial in the sound you are looking for. thanks again to UA for going native with individual perpetual licenses.

      Simple & Effective

      Excellent quality reverb sound with simple operation. Above all, it is attractive that this plug-in does not take up DSP data.

      Underwhelming & Disappointing

      I tried this plugin for the first time and I didn't like the sound, however I tweaked the settings. I don't know if it's because I don't like plate reverb or because I don't like this plugin, but all I know is I simply don't like the sound. Furthermore, the UI is a little counterintuitive and doesn't resize/scale well on my display systems. I uninstalled almost immediately.

      Fantastic Sound

      Easy and simple to use.
      Good to make a room feel.
      Or to make a clear tail to the instruments.
